Researching My Longbottom Line
Posted by: Lynn Rice Date: January 27, 2001 at 17:21:57

I am trying to trace my Longbottom ancestry. I haven't been able to go back very far. My father was Samuel Fletcher Longbottom, b. 1902 in Knoxville, TN/d. 1963 in Avon Park, FL. His father was Robert Franklin Longbottom, b. 1864 in TN/d. 1925 in Waldo, FL. His father was Benjamin Longbottom, b. 1831 in Wilkes Co., NC/d.1848 in Knox Co. TN.
His father was Elijah Longbottom, b. about 1801 in Blount Co., TN/d. date unknown but was approximately 1839-40 in TN.

Samuel (my father) married Emily Wills in FL. She is still living. Robert married Mary Elizabeth Brown in 1891 in Knox Co. TN. Benjamin married Elizabeth Tallent in 1848 in Blount Co., TN. Elijah married Elizabeth Bonham in 1826 in Blount Co. TN.

I have names of children from each of these families. I can go back pretty far on the wives families, especially Elizabeth Bonham. But I have found nothing beyond Elijah.

Does anyone out there know any of my family?
I would appreciate any help.
